Wales caretaker coach Rob Howley recalls Dan Biggar and Jamie Roberts for the autumn internationals, but there is no place in the 35-man squad for Gavin Henson.

Fly-half Dan Biggar has been brought back into the Wales squad for their autumn internationals.

The Ospreys star was dropped for the 3-0 series whitewash in Australia, but both him and uncapped teammate Aaron Jarvis have been named in Rob Howley's 35-man travelling party.

Howley, who is in caretaker charge while regular coach Warren Gatland is on British and Irish Lions duty, has continued with Sam Warburton as captain.

Centre Jamie Roberts also returns after an injury layoff, as do Scarlets pair Rob McCusker and Tavis Knoyle.

Backs Lee Byrne and Gavin Henson are notable absentees, with the latter having only recently made his comeback from a broken cheekbone.

Wales begin their autumn schedule against Argentina on November 10 before facing Samoa, New Zealand and Australia.

Full Wales squad:

Backs: L Halfpenny, Liam Williams, A Cuthbert, G North, H Robinson, A Beck, J Davies, J Roberts, S Williams, D Biggar, J Hook, R Priestland, T Knoyle, M Phillips, Lloyd Williams

Forwards: S Andrews, R Bevington, P James, A Jarvis, G Jenkins, A Jones, R Hibbard, K Owens, M Rees, B Davies, L Charteris, I Evans, A-W Jones, T Faletau, R Jones, R McCusker, A Shingler (Scarlets), J Tipuric, J Turnbull, S Warburton
